But, in the meantime, let’s get your gaming tables looking good.

From the article:

It has been a while since my last review of a Wargames Factory kit, but recently I was approached by WGF’s lovely sales people if I was free to review their latest release – the American War of Independence British Infantry box.

The models in this review were supplied by Wargames Factory. I prefer to point this out when ever I receive review copies just you guys know. I always aim to write my reviews in an honest and unbiased fashion because otherwise there would not be much point to them, right?

I would also like to point out that I’m not an expert on the American War of Independence so if you find any bits I or the models got wrong feel free to correct them in the comments section.

With all of this out of the way, let’s dig in!
